León, Gto.- The Undersecretary of Labor and Social Welfare, Marco Antonio Rodríguez Vázquez reported that The maximum day to deliver a Christmas bonus is December 20.
“Fortunately in Guanajuato we have compliant businessmen, if we had around 223 complaints of which part was attended to, we had a special operation of 600 inspections regarding the review of OCT – Participation of Workers in Profits – and we will do the same in the issue of bonuses,” he said.
“In the majority of cases where we begin to have complaints, we advise the worker because the date for delivery of the bonus has not yet expired; these complaints were not made because many employers, on the economic side, pay them on the last day.” , he indicated.
Rodríguez Vázquez highlighted that in the state of Guanajuato there are employers committed to their obligations to workers, so “complaints” are only observations, but when there is fraud, a fine is imposed on the companies.
“Another issue, the law states that they have to be paid before the 20th but if the employer pays it on the 20th, we do not sanction, we leave a letter saying that for next year at the latest it must be paid as stipulated by law and in “The inspections that we do if we detect fraud in the PTU or bonus if the sanction is greater than if we detect a calculation error in decimals, we only ask the employer to do the whole thing to the employees no later than 24 to 48 hours.” , he emphasized.
What is the bonus?
The bonus is a right that workers who work in the country and have a salary cannot renounce; it represents an additional remuneration to the 12 monthly payments that the employee receives during the year.
Calculate your Christmas bonus
First of all, you should know what this remuneration amounts to. For employees who work in the private sector, there is at least 15 days of salary if they worked the full year, but if they have not completed one year in the position, it will be necessary to learn how to calculate the proportional bonus.
To calculate the bonus you must know how much you earn per working day. This figure is obtained by dividing the net monthly salary by 30, the number of days in the month.
